August 26, 2013 


A Northwest MedStar helicopter takes off from the scene of a three-vehicle wreck in 2010 on Highway 124 near Burbank. The company named a new base chief for the business stationed at the Richland Airport.


Roger Casey, MSN, RN, CEN, has been named Tri-Cities base chief for Northwest MedStar. The base is at the Richland Airport.

Casey, who previously worked as trauma and stroke coordinator at Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland, has 22 years of experience in health care, including 17 in emergency medicine, a MedStar news release said.

“I am a patient advocate and believe that the patients in our community and region deserve the best care available. I’ve worked with Northwest MedStar and have seen firsthand their commitment to quality patient care,” Casey said in the release.
